Hi, I recently looked into telescope's & dso's again due to an interesting sight in the night sky . I wanted to get into telescope's etc... but my budget and other things got in the way. This time there's no budget limit (that doesn't mean I'm bill Gates though). My main concern is size since I will carry the telescope with my bare hands (bag). I don't have a local astronomy club or telescope shop around so I don't know if an 8" Newtonian is too bulky/big. Can someone post comparison pictures, if you have an 8" telescope (preferably newtonian, width and length)? Secondly I want to see dso's in the future (firstly beginner objects etc...) so the 8" is more adequate than the 6", but if an 8" is too big then I am okay with a 6" as long as it's much more portable.
Heyyyyy its me againnn . I am trying to find a good UHC (Open to OIII ones aswell) filter to use for nebula observation. I ve stumbled upon these 2 : 1 Explore Scientific UHC Nebula Filter https://www.firstlightoptics.com/uhc-oiii-visual-filters/explore-scientific-uhc-nebula-filter-1-25-2-inch.html 2 UHC FILTER https://www.firstlightoptics.com/uhc-oiii-visual-filters/uhc-filter.html Can somebody tell me which is better? Or if somebody has one themselves , can tell me if they are worth buying or just saving for a better one. If you want to you can recommend me a good UHC OR OIII filter for viewing Nebulas thanks. -Kronos
